In the early 1950s, Sydney teenager Jeanette Elphick was a modelling sensation, so beautiful that she was nicknamed “The Face”. At 17, she made her local movie debut with Chips Rafferty in an Australian cowboy flick called The Phantom Stockman. In 1955 Jeanette got her big break when she worked with Bob Hope, during his first tour Down Under, and the veteran funnyman recommended she go to Hollywood. She did — and became an overnight star under the name Victoria Shaw, thanks to her role with Tyrone Power in The Eddy Duchin Story. More good roles followed — in film noirs The Crimson Kimono and Edge Of Eternity, biopic I Aim For The Stars and sci-fi hit Westworld. But her fame came at a price.
